The Mazda MX-5 convertible is just so much better on every front in this, its fourth guise. It’s lighter than last time around, handles more sharply, and it benefits from improved engineering, too. Although it comes with what can only be described as “nippy” engines, it offers enough tenacity and agility to more than make up for that perceived lack of straight-up power.
It’s also got a good legacy to fall back on, too. If you remember the original Mazda MX-5, you’ll recall how exciting it was. Happily, Mazda are seeking to recreate that excitement here. Let’s take a closer look at what it’s all about.
Mazda MX-5 Test Drive
Mazda clearly don’t buy into the idea that more is better, not where the MX-5 is concerned at least. There are a choice of two engines, both of them petrol units: there is a 2.0-litre 160PS variant, or a slighter 1.5-litre 131PS
